USB device problem


I have Kingston 512MB USB stick and when i plugged it in my CPU Fedora Core 3 didn't detect it. Does it detect automatically or you have to set it up manually. Plz help me in this regard

You should find if you watch /var/log/messages as it's being plugged in it will show you:
Code:
tail -f /var/log/messages
and see what device it assigns to it.

my FC3 detects and mounts it automatically.. but if not i think you can mount it manually like this:

$su
#mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/some_folder

and be sure to umount it before you remove it:
#umount /mnt/some_folder
or else the data will be lost.

I did what fouldsy said and the device was sda1. Now I am able to mount and unmount it but it has to be done manually. Can it be made to mount automatically whenever the USB is plugged in?
